Understanding elevator dimensions is vital to buying protective padding that not only looks great and protects properly but fits just right as well. Here are some simple points and resources to keep in mind when properly measuring the interior dimensions of an elevator cab.
Before measuring anything at all, it is always good to keep in mind the Pound Capacity, depicted in the Elevator Dimensions Chart (below). Though not an exact point of reference, this chart is a helpful tool, especially once you realize that your measured elevator dimensions are disproportionate to the elevator’s listed maximum capacity.
